About Us

The Patriot CSR was formerly known as the Amaryllis Charitable Trust, which was created in 2001 by Essex-based businessman and entrepreneur, David King MBE.  The Patriot Group of companies became the ultimate parent from August 2018, with David still leading the way.

Since then, the CSR has supported a wide range of charitable causes, from new build hospital and schools in Africa to children’s charities in the UK. It has also provided support for arts and entertainment both in the UK and overseas.

David has continued to work with other charitable organisations in his role as a Director, Trustee or Patron. These include: The Arts and Entertainments Charitable Trust, The Heritage Foundation, Heads2Minds, Childline in the UK, as well as a number of other international charities based overseas.

The Patriot CSR


The CSR operates an open policy on the organisations it supports and we would encourage you to contact Michael Hunt, the trust’s grants officer, if you are unsure about making an application.

The trustees are unlikely to support large national charities with overheads, preferring to devote funds to a specific project or intervention.

The Patriot CSR provides single payment grants over a one-year period to registered charities, including those registered as a company limited by guarantee and charitable incorporated organisations.

It will also accept applications from students who wish to study in the Arts & Entertainment arena.

We do not make grants in response to applications received in the form of general appeals or mail shots.

The average grant amount is £5,000, therefore please take this into consideration when stating the amount you wish to apply for. The trustees award larger grants by invitation only.
